Riot Games has announced that the LEC Summer Finals will be taking place in Malmö, Sweden, from 10-11 September 2022. The event marks the return to live, in-person events after the industry was forced to online-only events over the past three years due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The last time the Summer Finals made its way to an international live stage was at Athens in 2019. This year, all of the main action will be taking place at the Malmö Arena.
“We are absolutely thrilled to announce that we will be hosting our 2022 Summer Finals in Malmö, Sweden. Being the first roadshow we’ve hosted away from our Berlin studio in three years, we can’t wait to give the fans an unforgettable experience. We’re pleased to be working with the City of Malmö again and look forward to bringing the breathtaking atmosphere to their city,” said Maximilian Schmidt, Head of League of Legends Esports in EMEA.
“We are incredibly proud to have the League of Legends European Championship in Malmö. This again shows that Malmö is an event and gaming city to be reckoned with,” said Mats Schöld, Head of Events at Department of Leisure, Recreation and Sport at the City of Malmö.
